So your going along the standard operation escorting and building destruction and....

All of a sudden a big azz KRAKEN PUSS starts pulling your ship under!!   Only your teammates can fire upon it in Hope's for it to loose its grip to save you!?

Parks? The kraken can have him for all I care. Also on a completely unrelated note, does anyone know of an effective giant kraken bait? Just for research purposes, mind you.

Disney would never play ball (at least for a reasonable price), but a Pirates of the Caribbean themed OP would be awesome. Black Pearl, Dutchman, Kraken, East Indy Company, random chaos, no real objective except to shoot things, would be hilarious fun.

Sounds like a good idea for an event.

Could be an interesting Halloween one

You play as a group of submarines. You have to escorts AI BBs (3 on normal, 2 on hard) to destroy a tower that is the krakens life force (for some reason). 

The AI BBs will target any ships (all with kraken themed camo) that attack them, but you're going to have to help them. There are forts, but they only launch DCs, and the BBs will target them if no enemies are in sight. 

Every once in a while, the kraken will come out and attack your group. It will target the BBs, and they cannot fire back (because it's underwater), so you are tasked with torpedoing the bugger. 

After you kill it (it has an HP bar) it will return to the tower and heal up before it appears again to attack. 

A secondary objective will appear, an AI CV escorted by two DDs will show up, but will be under attack by enemy ships. If you don't help, they'll be destroyed and you will lose a star. The CV only has depth charge planes (will help kill the kraken) and bunker busters (to destroy the tower/ any forts) and can't defend itself against surface vessels. 

After you reach the tower and kill it, you have to re kill the kraken and its goons in a final showdown. As long as you have one surviving teammate (including AI) and you sink all enemies, you will win. If you destroy the tower before the kraken is fully healed, you will just have to kill it's remaining HP bar, regardless of how low it is.

To streamline things and to minimize AI pathing problems, the group of BBs will be IMMOVABLE and set on a strict path. To compensate, no enemy ships will launch torpedoes. 

 

Some possible secondary missions are:

  • Save the CV
  • Make sure no BBs are sunk
  • Destroy all enemy forts (Subs will have controllable guns, you won't have to rely solely on the AI)
  • Kill the Kraken in under x seconds
  • Etc.

You'd have to include the music.

I've been wanting varied fauna for years.  Seagulls; squatches peeking out from behind trees; whales breaching; and dolphins escorting bow wakes.

Krakens are part of the natural world too and need to be included.  And in random battles - that's why they're called randumb.

Could be an interesting event. Maybe WG will make something for next Halloween.
